Ratings for Dr. Richard E. Hrdlicka
Dr. Hrdlicka and his rude staff are a joke. Theres no other way to say it. I was coughing and struggling to breathe so a doctor had sent me to this waste of space. He tested me for allergies and went down a long list of things I was supposedly allergic to. I had to get a shot every week. I didn’t know that my insurance was only paying a certain portion. And the staff did some pretty negligent things that certainly didn’t help. So I got into over eight hundred dollars in debt. Which I really struggled to pay. The nurse at the desk really showed no sympathy and practically mocked me when I panicked. I really had to bend backwards to get the money. And then I was informed that I would have a deductible to meet every year that would be over two thousand dollars. So I freaked out. I don’t make a lot of money. And I really didn’t like the idea of having to get a shot every week anyway. So I called the vitamin shoppe and asked if they had any vitamins that could help me with this. They said they had some that would build the immune system and I should be fine. So I went in and had them point me to what they thought would work best, along with a bottle of vitamin C. sure enough I was no longer coughing and struggling to breath. i have not been any for anymore shots since. I don’t even take those vitamins anymore. I take a multivitamin in the morning and put pure coconut oil in whatever I can, that’s pretty much about it. I paid my debt and said I wont be back as I walked out. That promise has been met. I haven’t been there in almost a year now. Their business is a scam. Those people are a joke. What they do for a living could be seen as hilarious if it werent so pathetic.
Dr. Hrdlicka, This is Jennifer Esposito. Remember me? The daughter of Gary and Patricia Esposito. The severely mentally ill child-turned young woman-turned adult, whose health you constantly neglected in favor of pushing your anti-milk and anti-wheat agenda. Because of you, my parents beat the living daylights out of me. You told them that I was fine, that I was just a bad person and needed severely extreme punishment. That my only problem was too much bread and milk. So, every time I had a panic attack, or an episode of OCD, or yet another incident of agoraphobia, they fucking beat my ass until I bled, and you condoned it. That was your healthy solution. Abuse your mentally ill child. I’m sure you’ll remember me. You were my “doctor” for 18 years, until I was finally able to pursue my own healthcare. And believe me, I did. I immediately sought psychiatric treatment, and received it. Unfortunately, it was too little too late. As a result of your absurd, heinous neglect as a so-called “medical professional,” I continue to battle suicidal ideation on a very regular basis and have been hospitalized multiple times. Hell, one of these days, I just might succeed. I’ll probably end up killing myself. This will be overwhelmingly your fault, for your insistence to my clueless parents that I battle my severe mental disorders by consuming less wheat and dairy. You’re getting older now. You’ll die soon. I may too, but it will be at my own hand, if so. However, I want you to know one thing. As you’re living out the last moments of your life, I want you to know how you ruined mine. You destroyed a person with your ill-advised, misguided, and utterly ridiculous version of treatment. You are a disgrace. I wish you all the worst. Jennifer Esposito
I went to Dr. Hrdlicka for my thyroid. He is the first doctor to listen to me, order the appropriate lab tests, and put me on the right medication. I have have struggled for years and seen many specialists prior with no good results. I am grateful to find such a caring and competent doctor.
I went to Dr Hrdlicka because he is supposed to be an "environmental specialist" . He refused to talk about it, my 2nd visit to get lab results rushed me out of there. Would not listen and interrupted me Everytime i tried to talk. Then proceeded to tell me it's agoraphobia. Left there with no direction or help at all. Did NOT address the reason I went in. He should NOT be listed as a environmental specialist.
Loved the old staff... The new one is horrible and finds reasons to charge you for office visits. Every time I have blood drawn for my thyroid, they require that I come in (and pay an office visit) to pick up the prescription. The old staff (and every other doctor I have ever had) would just call it in and not charge fir a second visit. They are rude and condescending as well. DO NOT GO HERE!
Staff gives you the run around. I call on Friday becasue I was running out of a presecription--they were closed. Pharmacy faxed the request for the prescrition. I called the doctor again on Monday morning and they would authorize the prescription with the doctor. I called the pharmacy on Monday afternoon--they had not heard for the dotor;s office. I called the doctor again on Monday afternoon and they still hadn't authroized but would ask him when he got done with a patient. Like I said, the staff gives you the run around.
